Mourinho plays down Fellaini injury fears

Mourinho plays down Fellaini injury fears

With United boss Jose Mourinho having indicated he will field a weakened team at the weekend in order to keep his big names fresh for the Europa League Final, the match looks like being something of a damp squib.

Manchester United's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini (R) talks with Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho (L) during the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Manchester United at St Mary's Stadium.

In Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Southampton he again selected an understrength team, leaving out Marcus Rashford, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and David de Gea.

"We are sixth, Crystal Palace are safe, it doesn't matter", he told the media.

"After the moment Palace beat Hull and Hull were relegated and Swansea are safe, the match should have been moved", he added. [But] it's going to be Sunday.

"It is frustrating for me and I hope you don't kill me when you see my team".

"I hope Big Sam shows he is a good friend and he asks Wilfried Zaha to go slow and leaves Chrsitian Benteke at home and they go soft on us". I don't lose time.

Romero says his rapid rise is all down to Mourinho, saying: "I arrived here on a free transfer, nobody knew me".

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero was floating after his clean sheet for the draw at Southampton last night.

"I hope to play Joel against Crystal Palace", Mourinho said. "I think we did more than ok", he said.

"I think all of them gave me positive feelings". The XI that play at Stockholm would probably not feature at all in this last game.

And Mourinho said that, despite an imperfect display, he was pleased with his side's desire to prove themselves ahead of the Ajax clash - signalling out Romero for individual praise.

Mourinho believes that United should be allowed to instead play on Saturday, with little riding on his side's fixture against Palace, and will not be afraid to turn to the club's academy players to keep his star names fresh.

A victory means he will have won two major trophies and qualified for the UEFA Champions League, making the team's sixth-placed finish much less of a problem.
